We are delighted to be joined by Laura Carr who is an Education Solicitor at HCB Solicitors. Her work consists of representing parents and young people in relation to all education matters primarily in connection with special educational needs.
She is able to provide advice as to the Statutory Assessment process and what parents should expect as they begin the journey to securing an Education, Health and Care Plan for their child and if necessary securing a specialist placement.
A lot of her time is spent supporting parents with appeals to the SEND Tribunal. she has experience in all appeals that can be made to the Tribunal including a refusal to carry out an assessment of SEN, a refusal to issue a Statement of Special Educational Needs / Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and the contents of a Statement or an EHCP including any disputes regarding school placement.
